A few days ago Volition, the developers behind the Saints Row series (among others), announced their latest game; Agents of Mayhem. Described as an “open-world epic” the game sees the creation of a new comic hero universe.
“Meet the Agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. (the Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds) – a motley outfit of unique and diverse Super Agents recruited from around the world to thwart the destructive schemes of the evil supervillain organization L.E.G.I.O.N. (the League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations).”
Agents of Mayhem features an original storyline with Volition’s over-the-top gameplay style. The game does share the same universe as Saints Row and so shares some story elements and symbolism with the franchise. The description of the game is:
“In a simultaneous global assault, Legionhas taken control over the nations of the world and the only force left to stop them is Mayhem. Led by the mysterious and no-nonsense Persephone Brimstone, Mayhem’s elite Super Agents are called to the city of Seoul, South Korea. Led by Legion Minister Doctor Babylon and his diabolical lieutenants, a nefarious plot is set in motion to build a world-altering device that will grant unrivaled power to the supervillain organization. In order to stop Legion and take back the world, the Agents of Mayhem will traverse a sprawling urban battlefield from the ground to the rooftops and team up as a super-agent collective to stop Legion at any cost.”
The trailer can be found below.
